Secure Overview

Azion Secure products assist you in protecting your domains, applications, and infrastructure.

Secure is an area that works along with the building process and integrates itself with observability. When you’re building applications, security must be a part of the process from the beginning: they walk hand in hand with one another. Once the building and securing process is configured, you must also constantly observe your applications and implemented security rules to guarantee they’re working as expected and that you can make fast decisions and changes to configurations to continue securing them.

Edge Firewall

Edge Firewall is a programmable security product that allows you to secure your applications, your domains, and your user’s domains.

When a user attempts to access and attack your applications hosted on Azion with any type of attack, Edge Firewall and its modules act as a protection layer before the attack reaches your application and, consequently, the origin.

Edge Firewall is the core to protect your applications and domains but security rules and policies can be enhanced with modules: DDoS Protection Unmetered, Edge Functions, Network Layer Protection, and Web Application Firewall. As each of them has specific secure purposes, it’s recommended to use all of them so your applications are protected with the entire stack.

An attack attempt will pass through each of Edge Firewall’s modules and they’ll block the attack according to their purposes and configured rules.

Furthermore, your configurations need to be set as rules on Rules Engine for them to be implemented and for requests to be properly analyzed, allowed, or blocked.
